Muffin’s Pet Connection: FBI to track animal cruelty cases

HEY JUDE:  WOOF WOOF…HELP- “Ramon is a 10-month-old light beige and white English Bulldog/Boston Terrier mixed pup. I rescued him from the NYCACC Manhattan shelter several months ago.  He is 27 pounds, (probably fully grown) neutered, micro chipped and up-to-date with all of his vaccinations.

“He has made a tremendous amount of improvement since his first week of anxiety and nervousness. He now walks great on a leash, is friendly with other dogs, cats and kids, and really is a happy-go-lucky dog. He used to show signs of dominance when it came to his bed, treats and toys, but he has had lots of success since working with a dog trainer.

“The only issue is his food aggression. It is nothing drastic, just tension in the body. He growls a little when anybody approaches while he is eating. If anyone is interested in fostering or adopting him, or 646.354.8018. Thank you,  Sunny.”


MEEOW MEEOW:  “Xenakis and Giulietta (brother-tuxedo, and sister-calico) are around

eight or nine years old. I have had them since they were three months old. They were born on a farm in Saskatchewan, Canada, and are outdoor/indoor cats and house trained.

“They have been in New York City for six years and are due for their shots. They are neutered and spayed. They are also really good around babies and children, especially Giulietta.

“It would be ideal if they could be adopted together, but would do well apart now as well. (Xenakis tends to aggressively dominate and terrorize Giulietta if they are kept indoors together). They are both very affectionate with humans and like to be handled.

“To learn more or meet Xenakis and Giulietta, please call 646-431-4374 or”


Hey Jude,  “Iwould like to give you a big ” THANK YOU” from the bottom of my heart . Because of your article published in the September 3, 2014 issue of the Home Reporter newspaper under your “Muffin’s Pet Connection” column, I have found a wonderful and forever home for my two beautiful cats, Charcoal and Misty.

“They are now at home relaxing on a sunny windowsill in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Thanks to you once again, and may you continue your work for many more years to help other homeless animals find a forever home. Charcoal and Misty say “Meow Meow” (Thank you).” —  Carole Belletty, Brooklyn
